Sabaragamuwa University closed until further notice
The Director General of Student Affairs of the Ministry of Higher Education Keerthi Mawallage, said that a decision was made to close the Sabaragamuwa University until further notice, after a group of female university students forcefully entered the Sinharaja male hostel.
Meanwhile, the police used water cans this morning to disperse a student protest which disrupted the opening ceremony of the new females’ hostel of the university by the Minister of Higher Education, S. B. Dissanayake.
The protest was held at the Pabahinna junction along the Badulla- Colombo main road.
The protesting students stated that the new female’s hostel is not built according to proper standards.
